Aloha All 

For all those that called out to me this afternoon.
Mahalo. The AO51 easterly at 0231Z had a 
maximum elevation of 1.6 degrees here. I was able
to hear Patrick (WD9EWK) barely. A review of
the audio tape clearly shows WB7QXU also 
calling (I just couldn't make out Michael at the 
time). Operator error took my downlink off 
frequency for awhile. Today's pass indicates 
that AO51 is doable at less than 2 degs max. el.

Aloha and many tnx! We'll have to try this agn
soon. 73.
